Finding a Slipcover That Fits Your Furniture
A common question that comes up is "how do I find a slipcover that fits my specific furniture?" First things first, you'll want to measure your piece of furniture to find out the dimensions you're working around. You'll want to measure both the length and the width. Don't put away the tape measure just yet, because you'll want to measure the individual cushions as well, if applicable. This is because you'll want to know the length of the space between the arms of your furniture to ensure a better fit when it's time to pick out a slipcover.
Once you have the dimensions, our array of slipcovers typically come in various fits, so just find the one closest to your piece of furniture's dimensions! If you can't find one with the exact dimensions needed, be sure to pick one that's larger instead of one that is smaller so you can at least tuck it in if needed. Now that you know how to find the fit you need, it's time to look at what the different types of slipcovers you can browse!
One-piece slipcovers work best for furniture with attached cushions. The slipcover fits over the entire piece of furniture.
Two-piece slipcovers work best for furniture with non-attached cushions. They cover your furniture and cushions separately.
Cotton blends, cotton duck and twill deliver comfortable, casual style.
Microsuede and stretch fabrics provide a seamless look. They also work best for larger cushions and oversized arms, as they have more give.
Types of Slipcovers
There are various pieces of furniture that slipcovers are made for, such as couches, loveseats, chairs, and recliners. They also typically come in multiple patterns and colors!

Slipcover Tips & Tricks
No Tucking Area
If your sofa doesn't have creases in between the sofa arm and the back cushions, simply make neat pleats, and tuck all excess fabric under the seat cushions.
If your sofa's arms are thin, wrap them in batting, then cover with the slipcover.
Lay down a nonskid rug pad to reduce slipping and sliding.
Use a wooden spoon or spatula to help tuck in excess fabric. To keep it tucked in, roll up some old magazines with a rubber band and push them into the crevices.
Throw the slipcover in your dryer on a low setting with a damp towel for a few minutes. Put the slipcover back on your furniture while it's still warm to keep wrinkles from reappearing.
Dark colors, bold patterns & piping
Add a light-colored sheet between bold patterns and a light-colored slipcover to prevent the pattern from showing through. If you have bulky piping, you can add batting to keep the surface flat and even.
